Enthalpy was engaged to prepare tender enquiries for the Engineering, project and construction management of the new longwall surface facilities in Queensland for a $560M total project. The assignment was extended to provide a project control group for the premobilisation phase of the project. Continued success led to Enthalpy’s team being engaged for the full term of Engineering and Procurement, and after relocation to the site, the Construction and Start-up phases. The surface facilities include ROM coal handling, coal preparation plant, clean coal storage and load out, service buildings and site services. Enthalpy, as an independent project management group coordinated the EPCM Contractor, prepared Client procedures and standards, converted feasibility study estimates into project budget, established cost control systems, prepared construction schedules, and monitored and reported on contractor performance.
